Nickelodeon

Nickelodeon, often simply called Nick, is an American children's channel owned by Viacom and operated under its Nickelodeon Kids and Family Group. The channel is primarily aimed at children in grade school and early teens (ages 6–15), with their weekday morning program block aimed at preschoolers ages 2–5. Since 2004, Nickelodeon has been run by Cyma Zarghami. It is ranked as the #1 cable channel as of 2011. Nickelodeon's broadcast day runs on Sundays from 6 a.m.- 8 p.m., Monday-Thursdays from 7 a.m.-8 p.m., Fridays from 7 a.m.-9 p.m., and Saturdays from 6 a.m.-10 p.m. (Eastern and Pacific Time). Since 1985, it shares its channel space with Nick at Nite, a night time channel that airs sitcom reruns during the interim hours. It is treated as a separate channel from Nickelodeon by A.C. Nielsen Co. for ratings purposes.

Nickelodeon's history dates back to December 1, 1977, when Warner Cable Communications launched the first two-way interactive cable system, QUBE, in Columbus, Ohio. Its C-3 cable channel carried Pinwheel daily from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time.[2][3] Nickelodeon launched on April 1, 1979, initially distributed to Warner Cable systems via satellite on the RCA Satcom-1 transponder. Originally commercial-free, advertising was introduced in January 1984.

Nickelodeon's schedule currently consists largely of original series aimed at children, pre-teens and young teenagers, including animated series (such as SpongeBob SquarePantsThe Fairly OddParentsMiraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat NoirALVINNN!!! and the ChipmunksTeenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesHarvey BeaksRegal AcademyThe Loud House, and Kuu Kuu Harajuku), to live-action comedy and action series (such as Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & DawnPower Rangers: Dino ChargeThe ThundermansHenry DangerLegendary DudasGame ShakersSchool of Rock, along with the month-long running show Make It Pop), as well as series aimed at preschoolers (such as Team UmizoomiPAW PatrolBubble GuppiesBlaze and the Monster MachinesWallykazam! and Dora and Friends: Into the City!). The channel also airs reruns of select original series that are no longer in production (such as iCarly and Bella and the Bulldogs), as well as occasional original made-for-TV movies. The channel also aired bi-monthly special editions of Nick News with Linda Ellerbee, a newsmagazine series aimed at children that debuted in 1992 as a weekly series which ended in 2015.
